Grand re-opening!


I started this blog to share my experiences chaperoning exchange students in Costa Rica, but didn’t think about how to keep it going.  I don’t travel all that often, but when I do, I’d like to be able to share what I find in one spot.

The photo above is the topiary near where I stayed when I went to Cusco, Peru about a year ago, and it’s the sort of thing that I like to share.  What are the ordinary things that you might just walk past in a particular part of the world?  Nobody’s going to put this dragonfly in a guidebook.  My kiddo and I can’t even agree on what animal it is (they think it’s a hornet).  But it’s still a neat little thing to notice and appreciate.

Sometimes you’ll get more touristy things, like this photo of the monument to Inca Pachacutec.  That was the next landmark that I would pass if I were walking from the apartment where I stayed, past the dragonfly, heading towards the historic downtown.


I may go back and add some posts about places that I’ve been but didn’t upload here, since this had been only a Costa Rica blog.

But the big upcoming news is that I’m going to Nepal in about two weeks!  So check back in to see more about that trip, and hopefully many more!
